Overall, I really enjoyed the film, but two things bothered me. It would have been nice for some of the lesser characters to have been fleshed out, especially Lohan's love interest, who is just not given enough to do. I couldn't understand why they liked each other or how they got together at the end. His character had no purpose and only seemed to be there to have the 'needed' love interest. Doesn't work! Also, the musical number near the end of the film seemed to come out of nowhere, and only to promote Lohan's CD. It was a cheap shot and didn't work and ALMOST, but not quite, ruined what is an otherwise top-notch entry in forgettable tween comedies.
I think the reason the film ultimately succeeds is because of Lohan's character Lola (Real Name: Mary), who is very fun and likeable. Her view of life is a great one and I am sure the drama queen in all of us can relate to her exaggerated way of thinking. Lohan brings charm and sass to the role and makes her character very special. Lola is one of the most wonderful cinematic characters I have encountered and she truly made the film rise above-average.
Add the always wonderful Carol Kane, Glenne Headly, Adam Garcia (Coyote Ugly), and Alison Pill (Pieces of April) to the mix, and you have a winner. This was truly a nice change of pace.
One thing I have to admit is that when my sister bought me the DVD I wasn't looking forward to watching the movie because I thought it would be boring and I'd fall asleep and yada, yada, yada. I was totally and completely wrong and I beg Lindsay to forgive me for my judging the movie by its cover.
Within the first couple minutes of watching the movie my sister and I were cracking up like nobody's business. We've enjoyed all of Lindsay's movies like Parent Trap, Life Size, and, of course, Mean Girls, and this one exceeded the level of awesome. It is on a level of awesome, which awesome hasn't even seen yet. The laughs are nonstop and I MEAN nonstop.
The characters were all so very wonderful. First there's Lola. See, I knew she would be dramatic, but that dramatic? It was cool. Plus I liked her parents. Then there was Ella. Sweetie turned toughie by her new best friend. Plus Lola and Ella became sort of like soul sisters, which is something I can relate to. Carla, the classic bitch, is next. I was surprised by her. Why? Because the evil character is supposed to be an ugly airhead. Why in anyone's name was she that hot? That was just... different. Change of pace, though. I liked it. My favorite character out of all of them, though, was Miss Baggolli. She DEFINED funny. I was up all night laughing at her parts. I literally didn't get any sleep. She is the best teacher character I have ever seen and she was just so cool.Read more ›
